WOOFer's Dress Code - Putting On the Dog


Some of us over 50, are quite confused about how we should present ourselves.

We're unsure about the kind of image we're projecting and whether or not we are correct in trying to conform to current fashion.

In spite of what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided: (courtesy of WOOFer, Dottie)

* A nose ring and bifocals
* Spiked hair and bald spots
* A pierced tongue and dentures
* Miniskirts and support hose
*Ankle bracelets and corn pads
* A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
* Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
* Bikinis and liver spots
* Short shorts and varicose veins.

Of course, we all know that none of us are guilty of the above, but we can always inform our friends who might be (ahem).

To read more valuable tips for "Dressing the Mature Mutt," Read chapter Eight, "Putting On the Dog," in WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty.

Thanks, Linda! Btw, in case you notice this post has disappeared, we're reposting it May 18 to make way for a blog about Bea Arthur.

Appreciate the comment! Glad we could make you laugh!

Great fashion tips. However, if it's really hot out, go with the shorts and who cares what you look like!

I hear you, Morgan. Sometimes it just pays to go with comfort.

Comfort is key, isn't it? Maybe a nice balance betwee our personal comfort and the comfort of those having to look at us!
